Details of swap:
I've done many Japanese-based swaps, and they've all been lovely. But there is an entire continent, and a number of island archipelagos beyond the Japanese isles. We need
to turn our crafty attentions towards them.
It doesn't matter if you don't know the country, the crafts, the techniques. There's a link list below this which you can look through for inspiration. Because, honestly, some of this stuff is amazing! Christmas lanterns from the Philippines, weaving from the hill tribes of Thailand, intricate and beautiful batik from Indonesia, Korean paper crafts, Chinese knotting....
Asia is a huge continent, so I will limit the choice of countries somewhat. I'm thinking anywhere east of India, west of New Guinea. And, I'm sorry, no Japan. I really want to see what we can make when we step outside of Japanese style and traditions.
There's about a month of crafting time here, because you may need to research a little, collect a few ideas and whatnot. As for items... well... how does 1x large + 1x small OR 1x medium + 2x small sound? Of course, once you're partnered up, you're free to discuss the amount you craft between yourselves.
If you want to participate, here's the information to send to me:
